Three Types of Text: Year Long BUNDLE


Second and third grade teachers this Bees reading has 3 types of text! One product with Informational Text, a Fictional Story, and a Non-Fiction Poem. The story and the poem are original works that I've written especially for this product. I've provided two ways to interact with the informational text: Magazine Style with two columns per page and Full page which can be used for close reading and annotating.

Each literature type has 4-7 printables that are Common Core aligned and cover many of the ELA standards within the 3 major clusters: Key Ideas and Details, Craft and Structure, and Integration of Knowledge and Ideas.

If you are learning about a honey bee's life cycle then this for you! The following topics are covered:
Page 1
Life Cycle: Egg
Life Cycle: Larva
Life Cycle: Pupa
Life Cycle: Adult Bee
Page 2
Hardest Worker: Life of a Female Bee
Hardest Worker: In the Hive
Hardest Worker Outside the Hive
Page 3
a fun Informational Sheet about Bees

Please note: it does not have information about bees' characteristics, such as head, thorax etc.

The following skills are practice with the printables:
Comprehension/Purpose of the Text
Main Idea and Details
Author's Craft
Author’s Message
Character Point of View
Inferencing
Story Structure
Visualizing
Facts and Details
Analyzing Poetry


There are Teacher Mini-Lessons on:
•Activating Prior Knowledge
•Vocabulary Suggestions
•Chronological Order
•Sequence of Events
•Repetition: Literary Technique
•Student Discussion Activities

The story and poem are both originals that I've written. I enjoyed writing these two fun and interesting pieces that I know 2nd and 3rd grade students will enjoy! Fun, relevant and educational…what more could you ask for!


You can use these in small student-led cooperative groups, whole class, small instructional groups, at a literacy center and so much more!

I've also included a blank mini-book that students can create to share their learning about bees.
